With a long and narrow garden, running S-N, at a certain time of evening, when the softening light slants down in over walls and neighbouring buildings, one side of the garden is awash with gold, the other side veiled in blue shadows. One such recent evening made me wonder whether I should be planting with that sort of lighting in mind… pale colours for the blue side, hot colours for the setting sun.
but then there’s the morning sun from the other side. Blast. That needs flowers with translucent petals… ah, oriental poppies!
